I like these too

anodized rear set and guards would be nice, wonder if the latest gen stock adjustable sets off the 1000 would fit, those would be nice anodized as well with the GSXR guards..
I saw these and put these on my squid bling list along with:
anything with spikes
chrome
adding anything that says gsxr to a gsxr
rim tape
tread paint
Lowering and stretching

Re: My practically free 97 750! (build thread)

yea that looks good, did you protect the top clamp or is it bare metal? I brushed the top flat part of mine then applied a coat of light flat but it didn't stick, I cleaned it with vinegar and alcohol before painting, now the tank bag buckle has dinged it up with black that WONT come off, I need to take it down again and find a coating that will stick, can you do thin matt or flat powder coats?

maybe I need to anodize it?

yeah thin powder coat is simple...flat and semigloss are simple as well.. the fork are just lightly powdercoated with a semigloss gold. not exactly the the color of the wheels but close enough...triple will get carbon fiber treatment! thanks for the compliment.

Re: My practically free 97 750! (build thread)

it might look funny if they match perfectly, just a little off is good I think, helps break everything up, but yea thats a sweet SRAD you did all bearings and seals, go through the electrical and fix all common issues?

be just like new, they are good bikes, a lot of people just don't know

Re: My practically free 97 750! (build thread)

obviously this one but unless you have the graphics kit the shredded look will be difficult to acheive, its possible you could have em made by tapeworks.com?
